Overview

String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles are superior drop-in replacement saddles for Floyd Rose Original and licensed bridges.

How do they work?
A string resting on a metal saddle binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it stresses the string on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each String Saver saddle is impregnated with Teflon, the slipperiest substance on earth. The Teflon in String Savers eases the grip between the saddle and string, spreading the stress over a greater portion of the string, just enough to drastically reduce string breakage. Teflon is 500% more slippery than graphite and is impregnated throughout the String Saver material, so its lubricating properties will never wear out. For string breakage reduction the difference is dramatic. Strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play&hellipGraph Tech guarantees it!

What do they sound like?
Metal saddles have a pronounced 2kHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have a more balanced tone, with highs, mids and big open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    The saddles are working well. Complaint is that the back part of the 2 piece saddle is not beveled like an original Floyd Rose would be, so the fit is marginal. Some strings are adjusted as far back as possible (G & E on strat). If they ever need to go further the instructions from graph tech is to re-drill and move your bridge posts back. Not good.

    What a HUGE IMPROVEMENT!!

    By Daniel Carter

    from OAK RIDGE, TN

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    I had to do something to improve the tremolo's performance on my new EVH Striped Series Guitar. The guitar plays great just as my two Wolfgangs, but just had something going on with the Floyd Rose. Once I found the replacement saddles with the Graphite/Teflon string contact point, I thought I would give these a try. IM VERY HAPPY I DID!! Not only does the guitar stay in tune, it plays much better and it has a thicker sound. I SHALL BE ORDERING TWO MORE SETS TO UPGRADE THE FLOYD ROSE TREMOLO'S ON MY 2 WOLFGANGS! GREAT IDEA AND GREAT PRODUCT

    Removed the Bite from my Guitar -

    By BrokenBird

    from WA

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    Upon fitting my guitar with these, I had this huge impression that my guitar had had its teeth removed or "gummed". The feeling playing the strings, however, was... strange NOT unpleasant. Perhaps even better than normal.

    Bottom line, I think these could do well for Blues or Rock - But not METAL.

    That all satisfying metal "bite" from the guitar is what makes hitting the strings so satisfying tone and sound wise for me, so these had to go.

    The good, The bad, and The ugly

    By Richard Dolson

    from Danbury, CT

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    I would love to rate these with five stars, but... The good. Love the tone and the quality of these saddles. The bad. They are larger (longer) than stock FR saddles. All my strings were able to be intoned, except for one, my low E. The saddle was too long to move back far enough to get spot on. The ugly. I had to file off some of the bottom back edge of the saddle to get it to move back far enough. (Apparently, this is the only solution Graph Tech offers) for the price they are getting, it should actually fit. If I change my strings so that I will need to move all the saddles back, it will be a pain, and I will probably take these saddles off.

    Not so

    By Jimthesoundguy

    from wisconsin

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    The graph tech part is amazing and superior and all that, but like many misguided american companies, they contracted the steel part of the saddles out to china. What you are left with is ill-fitting, splayed, hard to intonate saddles with a tiny piece of silicone graphite or whatever stuck in the top. This part works quite well as advertized, but you must grind off the chrome between the saddles to get them to fit. So, yeah, once again a little chinese engineering goes a long way to making the whole nearly worthless. Overpriced and ill-designed.

    Great Product But.....be Carefull.....

    By OMAR-K6Wky

    from Puerto Rico

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    Great Product.Very well made.Probably better than the Original Floyd Saddles on my guitar but...If you will only going to switch saddles,they will do the trick very well.If you are concern about tone and want to do a correct tuning and intonation then you will have problems.The String Saver Saddles are larger than the Original Floyd saddles wich means that you will not be able to go backward as much as with the original ones if you need to do so to find the right intonation hole.The bigger,larger String Saver Saddle will hit the Floyd Rose's tail preventing you to correct intonate your guitar.I did email them with my problem.They answered very fast giving me only two options:Making it shorter with a grinder or to return the saddles.

    Pretty Good.

    By bluesrefugee

    from Western KY

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    Installed a set of these on an old BC Rich Warlock NJ, due to a saddle breaking on the cheapo pot-metal licensed bridge (pretty common problem). Haven't had a problem with these yet. I've had the same set of strings on now for about 4 months, with no breaks (I'm not a big whammy bar guy, but I do use it occasionally).Keep in mind that these do slightly change the tone of your guitar. I've found that the guitar sounds smoother without that "spike" when you pluck a string. So if you like that little extra nasty from the 2000khz string bite, then I don't recommend them.My first complaint: these do not work with the shorter block screws that came with my licensed bridge. I had to use the longer screws that came with the saddles, and they hit the top of the guitar if I lift on the trem too much. No big deal for a battle worn instrument.My second complaint: for what 2 sets of these cost, you could have a Floyd Rose Original.
